The website is optimised for a screen resolution of 1024 x 768 pixels. If a resolution of 800 x 600 pixels is in use, then the most essential information is still accessible (main navigation and content).
You can adjust the font size to your own needs by using the browser's menu or using the icons on the top right corner of the page. In the latter case, your individual font size setting will be saved for future visits (by means of a cookie). You can reset this setting by clicking here.
Page layoutAll pages of the website follow a clear layout: the navigation area on the left side, the content area in the middle, and a shortcut section on the right side.
On the top left, the ICPDR logo acts as a link to the homepage.
Below the logo floats the meta-navigation, allowing quick access to this help page, contact information, login link to the internal system and a sitemap. Additional icons can be found on the top right corner of the page, to recommend the current page to somebody by sending an email and to change the font size.
Most important is the main-navigation which consists of four sections: Danube Basin, Issues, Sectors and ICPDR.
The staggered menus provide access to all content. Move your mouse over the menu to show pages below, if any. Click on a menu entry to go to that page. Red markers indicate your current location. Some items are accessible through different pathways.
The search function is positioned below. Just enter a keyword in the text box and hit the Enter key or press the button to the right.
The content contains a progression in depth of knowledge: The current path and headline are followed by an introduction. This is followed by a summary text suitable for online reading. If available, any further information is provided as PDF files below.

The homepage is the starting point for the website and gives access to
news-items as well as important permanent content.
